@oursingaporereefs). Affectionately called OSR, a group of passionate advocates started this not-for-profit initiative that is fuelled by the love of the oceans and its inhabitants.
Their aim is to create a common platform for individuals, local businesses and the scientific community to combat marine debris together. Through OSR, they also hope to strengthen appreciation of the vast marine biodiversity in our home reefs. In order to achieve these goals, OSR has been working closely with like-minded businesses, NGOs, and governmental agencies. Despite being a relatively young initiative, OSR has organized numerous events such as underwater clean-ups, movie screening, public talks, and citizen science events since its founding. Today, others who share the same goal and love for the oceans have joined our cause:
Our Singapore Reefs, Our Treasure, Our Responsibility.
